Bet of the Day: Schalke to progress to DFB-Pokal semi-final

Royal Blues will be looking to bounce back with a win

The last place in the semi-finals of this season’s DFB-Pokal will be decided when Schalke 04 host VfL Wolfsburg this evening.

Schalke are currently fifth in the league, while Wolfsburg are down in 13th.

Die Wolfe are only four points above the relegation zone. They’re unlikely to go down, but with Bayern Munich looming this weekend, Martin Schmidt may rest a few regulars.

Schalke are firmly in the race for a Champions League spot, but they’ve got a genuine chance to lift some silverware in this competition. They won’t want to waste it.

The Royal Blues have an impressive home record this season too. Before Saturday’s defeat to Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich were the only away side to leave the Veltins-Arena with three points.

However, they’ve only kept one clean sheet in their last six home games. That’s why today’s Coral Bet of the Day is Schalke and Both Teams to Score at 11/4.

Guido back in the goals?

Guido Bergstaller is Schalke’s top scorer with seven league goals this term. But he’s not hit the back of the net in any of his last five appearances.

He hasn’t featured in the cup yet this term. The change of scenery could help him get back to his best. He’s 4/1 to score First and 7/5 Anytime.

Plenty of action

There tends to be goals when these two meet in Gelsenkirchen. Nine of the last 11 matches between them at Schalke have seen over 2.5 goals.

Over 2.5 Goals is 19/20, or there’s more value in Schalke and Over 2.5 Goals at 9/5.
